What size Michelin Pilot Sport 4S?

I need to replace my Michelin PSS 265/285 tires on HRE FF15 wheels in 20x10/11 lowered on H&R sport springs and 15/12 spacers. Should I go with the same size tires for the PS4 to not have any fitment issues or do I go with the 295 rear tire?

275/30/20 front, 295/30/20 rear should fit your wider wheel physicalily better with less stretch.

I know this size fits stock suspension, others will have to chime in with springs/spacers.

Overall tire diameter is not much larger. .3” maybe. Check tire size calculator. Good luck

On stock suspension and 437 wheels, does anyone have a recommendation as to wheel spacers for the following setup?

265/35R19 MP4S
295/35R19 MP4S (M01)

From digging around on various threads, my best guess is 10mm for the front and 10mm for the rear?

Would you keep 265 in the front or go with 275?

Apparently F82 has better front clearance on turn lock etc.

I use 5mm front and back. But I advise caution with this PS4S setup on 437 wheels.....see this post.
